É preciso ter muita coragem para cometer suicidio
I don't see it. I suspect he feels too important to die. And although he would have rather not have been exposed as a cheat, I do think the narcissistic part of him is rather enjoying the attention he's been receiving of late. Sort of like Rod Blagojevich during his public corruption scandel.purcell said:I think it isn't very far off in the distant future that they find Armstrong dead.
By his own hand.
This guy is used to being top dog, having Presidents and Prime Ministers taking his phone calls and having lots of cash rolling through.
He is now a pariah, no-one will want to be seen with him and his ability to throw his weight around will be gone.
I just don't see him taking it easily and fading into a life of obscurity.
Bad ending coming I think.
ask Race Radio who the guy was who sponsored him and lent him his sportscar, it was a mitzubishi or nissan I think I read.hrotha said:What's the consensus about Armstrong doping during his triathlon days before racing on the road and working with Carmichael and Wenzel? I've always read about that here, but I wonder if there's any tangible evidence I can share with others.
Before Carmichael there was Crawford.hrotha said:What's the consensus about Armstrong doping during his triathlon days before racing on the road and working with Carmichael and Wenzel? I've always read about that here, but I wonder if there's any tangible evidence I can share with others.
Rick "EPO Dealing, College cycling coach" Crawford? At least one other American road rider that had some sketchy performances joined the pros through Crawford.BroDeal said:Before Carmichael there was Crawford.
Dr Ferarri, one, working exclusively with Armstrong, so others had to get new programs with new docs, two, riders and teams were worried that after Festina the Gendarmes and others would be back in 1999.webvan said:Not wanting to defend Dopestrong naturally but what's the consensus here on the reasons for his being born again a GT rider in 1999 if he was doping like crazy since he was a teenager? We know it wasn't really the weight...the fact others had (temporarily) stopped doping after 1998?

http://www.thescore.ie/us-anti-doping-chiefs-expecting-full-lance-armstrong-confession-838192-Mar2013/Bock said he feels Armstrong will eventually come clean on the record, for the betterment of cycling.
“I have hope (Armstrong will assist USADA), and some of these things take time, so our door is open, and we know that he has information that would be useful to us,” he said.
“It was not a small operation on his team, and he was supported by many individuals, and it’s important for the future of the sport that Lance comes in and talks to us about how those people helped him with his doping.”
Bock said there was a new era on the horizon for the sport, should Armstrong finally admit under oath the same information he disclosed via TV star Winfrey.
“I think people in the sport of cycling are very excited that there’s an opportunity for a fresh start and a new beginning,” he said. “They hope that that continues, we had the independent commission that had been set aside, and a lot of people hope the effort moves forward in terms of trying to give the sport a fresh start.
He added: “Well I’m optimistic (as an) individual, number one. And number two, Lance keeps talking about how he cares about the sport, and I have a belief that if you care about the sport you’ll ultimately do the right thing.”
I stumbled upon a claim somethings changed for him at Strava vaguely recently. AFAICT, the URL is dead.Ninety5rpm said:No. He has been on Strava for months, with 7,460 followers. That's a lot by Strava standards.
What's new is that he just changed his Strava name from Juan Pelota to Lance Armstrong.
